Coupling Effects of Silicate , Iron and Other Various Abiotic Variables on Growth of Two Diatoms , Phaeodactylum Tricornutum and Thalassiosira Weissflogii and Their Silicon Utilization

The effects of various Abiotic factors, including concentrations of silicate and iron, temperature, light intensity and salinity of media on two purebred red tide diatoms, Phaeodactylum tricornutum and Thalassiosira weissflogii were investigated through single and full factorial experiments. The single-factor experiments showed diatom Phaeodactylum… CONTINUE READING
